J. R. B. Hathaway, Editor and Financial Agent, Edenton, N. C. < 

With this issue of -The North Carolina Historical anl- 
Genealogical Register, we enter upon a comparatively new ' and 
undeveloped field of journalism, in North Carolina. 

To write history accurately, under the most favorable circum 
stances is a very difficult task, rendered much more so "when thos 
who made it, have all passed from the stage of action to the silc; 
cities of the dead. We may repair to the cemeteries and press] 
close to the portals of the tomb, ears acutely tuned to catch the fair, 
whisper that falls from human lips, ask the sleepers there, , 
(luy are? Whence they came? What they did? But alas ; -., 
oppressive silence is broken only by the echo of our words, wail; 
back by the wind, as it sings through the waving grass and rustling 
leaves a requiem for the repose of those who sleep beneath. We I 
must turn to what has been written to learn their history, sad but 
true it is, here we find that fire social convulsions moth and rust, 
the destructive agents of time, have in many instances done well their I 
work, and left illegible the records our ancestors recorded with their , 
own hands, and attested with their seals. 

Time is a remorseless iconoclast. The most sacred idols are ruth- i 
lessly broken in his flight, and the tenderest ties severed by his stroke. 
He rules with stem decrees and an iron hand; sooner or later all ' 
things earthly must, yield to his sceptre. The flower blooms but to 
wither at his touch, the sturdy oak in conscious strength spreads 
forth its branches, only to be riven by his fiery bolt, or wrecked by 
the fierceness of his blast. Man is born but to die, and the epitaph of 
human life may be written in a few brief words, first the cradle then 
the grave, with a short space between, seldom barren, often filled 
with weeds and thorns, sometimes laden with luscious fruits and 
golden grain. Character alone defies his keenest blade, and laughs in 
triumph as the centuries march to their inevitable doom, for when

til the monuments of human greatness shall have faded into oblivion, 
yea, when the granite hills and the firmly-rooted mountains shall have 
waxed old, and melted upon the funeral pyre of time, character 
adorned with all that is pure and good, will rise Phocnixlike from 
his ashes to grasp immortal honors, that will shine with increasing 
lustre while the cycles of eternity roll their successive rounds. 

It will be our province to glean from the public records of the 
eastern counties of North- Carolina, as well as from those of the 
adjoining counties of Virginia, the history of those, who severed the 
ties of friendship, blood and home, in the old world to brave the 
oerils of the deep and greater perils of the wilderness, to lay the 
xmndations of a social fabric, that has become the pride of every 
Torth Carolinian, and the admiration of- her sister States, in the 
eat constellation which forms the American Union. ' 
To the rude log houses scattered here and there on the banks of the 
srcourses along the Atlantic seaboard, may be traced not only 
d genealogy of the State, but that also of the Republic. In the 
oellion against unjust taxation and oppressive laws, shortly after 
the establishment of the Colony in North Carolina, were sown the 
seed which fruited in 1776, in the successful struggle for liberty and 
independence, out of which sprang the Republic full panoplied, 
ready to take her place among the nations of the earth. From a nar- 
row strip of land on the Atlantic Ocean, it has developed into a vast 
empire, extending from where perpetual winter locks all nature in 
its icy embrace to where perennial spring infuses its genial breath 
into bursting bud and opening flower; from where the first rays of 
morning light gild the towering spires of our eastern cities, to where 
the evening shadows fall upon the golden gates of the far-distant 
west, whose varying climate and rich domain invite the oppressed of 
every nation, to come and dwell, where bounteous harvests reward the 
toil of the diligent, and labor finds a competency for the "winter 
of old age," and above all, where all the blessings of "Civil and 
-Religious Liberty" can be enjoyed, abridged only in social enjoy- 
ments by laws designed to elevate to a higher plane and destiny her

Fortitude is perhaps one of life's most useful lessons, certainly 
one of the most difficult to learn. It is taught so beautifully and 
impressively by the ferns as they bloom in the glens and dells of the 
forest, their leaves are brightest when the wind blows coldest, and 
where the shadows fall the thickest Fortitude is an essential con- 
stituent in the development of a vigorous, sturdy manhood. 

A correspondent is in quest of a copy of the MSS. records of John

readers' fez information as to the present ownership of the Bible, and

We are also requested tb'advertise fox the records of the Southwest 
Parish, later lawyn as St. Thomas Parish, in Bertie, the records ante- 
date 1722 and probably extend to 1840 or 1850. If they can be 

-'found, they will be very valuable in writing up the personal history 
of Bertie County, and throw much .light upon the history of families 
that can be obtained from no other source. We hope our readers \ V 
will institute an enquiry that will lead to their recovery. A large \ 
number of our subscribers are directly interested in these records. *

Johanna Jenkins as appears from the following item taken from the Perquimans 
records : Thomas Harvey son of John Harvey and his wife living at the Heath, 
in Snitherfield Parish, in Warwickshire, England, and Joanah Jenkins, ye relict 
of Hon. John Jenkins, were married by Anthony Slockem Apl. 13, 1«82 ; his sec- 
ond wife was Sarah Laker daughter of Benjamin Laker, issue (a) Thomas Har- 
vey married Elizabeth Cole daughter of Col. James Cole of Perquimans Precinct, 
(b) daughter Mary married Col. Robert West of Chowan (Bertie). Mrs. Sarah Har- 
vey married for her second husband. Chief Justice Christopher Gale, issue (a) 
Miles Gale, (b) daughter Penelope Little wife of William Little, who was also 
Chief Justice of the Colony, Elizabeth married Henry Clayton. Gov. Harvey 
came into the Colony as Private Secretary of Gov. John Jenkins. Query : Was 
he the son or brother of John Harvey ? He was his Executor, from the record 
of his marriage it would appear that his father was living at the time of his 
•marriage in England. 

f Note. —Evidently the son of Thomas Harvey and wife Elizabeth Cole, and 
grandson of Gov. Thomas Harvev and his wife Sarah Laker.

North Carolina Historical 


Lossing, in his " Field Book of the Revolution," states that the 
first church erected in North Carolina was located in Chowan County 
in 1705. While he is in error as to the date, he is correct as to its 
location. (Vol. — , page — .) 

Tradition has placed the first church on the site of St. Paul's 
Church, in the town of Edenton, N. C, and we regret that the tra- 
dition is not verified, by the evidence taken from the records, as 
given in this sketch. The writer takes no pleasure in destroying, 
but would rather confirm them. 

" At the organization of the first Vestry of St. Paul's Parish at the 
house of Thomas Gillam, Dec. 12, 1701," in obedience to an Act of 
Assembly made Nov. the 12th, 1701, appointing a Vestry for this 
Precinct consisting of Hon. Henderson Walker, Col. Thomas Pollock, 
William Duckinfield, Nicholas Crisp, Edward Smithwick, John 
Blount, James Long, Nathaniel Chevin, William Banberry, Col, 
William Wilkinson, Capt. Thomas Leulen, Capt. Thomas Blount, 
present, it being debated where a church should be built, Mr. Ed- 
ward Smithwick undertakes to give one acre of land upon his old 
plantation, and to give a conveyance for the same to the Church 
Wardens hereafter appointed for the use and service of the precinct, 
to build a church upon, and for no other use, and to acknowledge 
the same in open court." (Col. Rec., vol. I, page 543.) 

" It is appointed that Col. William Wilkinson and Capt. Thos. 
Leuten shall be Church Wardens for the following year, who shall 
agree with a workman for building a Church 25 ft. long, Posts in the 
ground and held to the Collar Beams, and to find all manner of Iron 
work, viz., Nails and Locks, &c„ with full power to contract and 
agree with the said workman, as to their direction, shall seem meet 
and convenient." (Col. Rec, vol. I, page 543.) 

" Ordered, that the Church Wardens aforesaid having agreed with 
the workman for the building of a church as aforesaid, whatsoever 
charge shall accrue for and towards the building of the aforesaid 
church, or any other charge relating to the same (although not here 
particularly mentioned) by the said Church Wardens be levied by 
the pole upon the Tythables of the Precinct, the Church Wardens 
first endeavoring to raise the said money by contribution, and in | 
case of failure to raise it by the pole as aforesaid, to agree with a Col- 
lector or Collectors to receive the same with power to destrain in case 
of Refusal." (Col. Records, vol. I,. pages 643 and 544.) 

The next evidence we introduce is a deed from "Edward Smith- 
wick to Thomas Luten and William Wilkinson, Church Wardens 
of ye Precinct of Chowan, in North Carolina." "Seventy yards

liam's in the woods, joining on the old field of the said Edward 
Smithwick. April 7, 1702. Test, Thomas Luten, Register." (Book- 
W, page 30, Register of Deeds' Office of Chowan County.) 

" At a vestry held at Thomas Gilliam's, Oct. 13, 1702, Present, 
Hon. Henderson Walker, President, Col. Wm. Wilkinson, Capt. 
Thomas Luten, Church Wardens, Nicholas Crisp, John Blount, Capt. 
Thomas Blount, Edward Smithwick, Wm. Banbury. 

"To building the Chapel to Mr. John Porter 25£, the list of Tyth- 
ables in tbe Precinct being taken is found to be 283." (Col. Rec, 
vol. I, pages 558-9.) 

" Ordered, that the vestry meet to-morrow morning to view the 

'Oct. ye 14th, 1702. The vestry being met and having viewed 
the Chappel, the major part of the vestry do declare their dislike of 
the ceiling of the Chappel, by reason of the Boards being defaced." 
(Col. Rec, vol. I, page 576) 

Ordered, that Mr. Edward Smithwick and Mr. Nicholas Crisp, on 
behalf of the vestry, do choose one indifferent man that is skilled in 
building, and Mr. John Porter shall choose another, who shall meet 
at the Chanel the second Saturday in November to give their "judg- 
ment whether the boards be fit for ceiling such a house, and if these 
two persons chosen as aforesaid cannot agree in their opinions, then 
they shall choose an umpire, and what opinion he the said umpire 
shall give shall be a full and final determination of the matter about 
the ceiling and boards, and the agreement between the Church War- 
deus and Mr. John Porter shall be thence." (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 
558-9 and 560) 

" At a vestry holden at the house of Mrs. Sarah Gilliam ye 15th 
day of December, 1702. Present, Col. Wm. Wilkinson, Capt. Thos. 
Leuten, Church Wardens, Mr. Wm. Duckinfield, Mr. Edward Smith- 
wick, Mr. Nicholas Crisp, Capt. Thomas Blount, Mr. William Ban- 
bury, Mr. Nath'l Chevin, Mr. James Long." (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 

"The Chappel being this day viewed by all the vestry here pres- 
ent, and are satisfied therewith and do receive the House and Keys 
from Mr. John Porter, he promising to provide so much Lime as 
will wash the ceiling of the Chapel, and the Vestry to be at the 
charge of a workman to do the same" (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 

"At a vestry holden at the Chappel ye 6th Oct., 1703. Present, 
Hon. Henderson Walker, Mr. Wm. Duckinfield, Mr. Edward Smith- 
wick, Col. Wm. Wilkinson, Church Wardens, Capt. Thos. Blount, 
Capt. Thomas Leuten, Mr. John Blount, Mr. Nicholas Crisp, Mr. 
Wm. Banbury, Mr. Nath'l Chevin." (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 576-7.) 

Ordered, that the Church Wardens shall, with all possible speed,

Lave the windows of the Chappell finished, and that Glass may be 
sent for or purchased here if possible." (Col. Rec, vol. I, page 571.) 

"At a vestry met at the Chapel the 9th day of March, J 703-4. 
Present, Hon. Henderson Walker, Col. Wrn. Wilkinson, Mr. Wm. 
Duckinfield, Mr. Edward Smith wick, Mr. Nicholas Crisp, Mr. John 
Blount, Mr. Wm. Banbury, Mr. Nath'l Chevin." (Col. Rec, vol. I, 
pages 576-7.) 

"Ordered, that the Church Wardens do speedily agree with aa 
workman to make pulpit and pew for the Reader with Desk fitting I 
for the same, and in as decent manner as may be, and what they I 
agree for the vestry do oblige themselves to see paid. And that they I 
put a former order in execution for the getting the windows put up, I 
and to get Glass and have it put in forthwith." (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages I

" Also debated the Payment of John Dicks for work about the 
pulpit, the said work not being finished, whether he should be paid 
before the work be done, He alledging that he could not finish it for 
want of Nails and Boards, and he brings an acct. for his work six 

" Ordered, that John Dicks be paid one pound, seventeen shillings, 
nine pence, besides what he has been paid, and that he finish the 
work, then account with the Vestry." (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 629 
and 630) 

" At a Vestry at the Chappell the 18 day of April, 1708. Present, 
Wm. Duckinfield, Mr. John Ardern, Capt. Thomas Luten, Mr. Nich- 
olas Crisp, Jno. Blount, Esq., Mr. Edward Smithwick, Mr. Wm. Ban- 
bury, Mr. Nath'l Chevin." 

"Ordered, that Phillis Dicks, widow of John Dicks, be paid by the 
publick the sum of two pounds, besides what he hath been allowed 
and paid by the public for his work on the Chapel. (Idem, p. 679.)

ent, Wm. Duckinfield, Esq., Edward Moseley, Esq., Mr. Edward 
Smithwick, Capt. Thos. Luten, Mr. Nicholas Crisp, Mr. Wm. Ban- 
bury, Mr. Thomas Garrett, John Ardern, Esq., Mr. John Blount." 

"It having this day been debated for the better encouragement of 
a minister (for this precinct only) which is the most proper place to 
purchase for a Glebe, it's unanimously agreed upon that the planta- 
tion now belonging to Mr. Frederick Jones, whereon the church now 
stands, is the fittest place can be thought on for that use:. the tract of I 
land in quantity containing five hundred acres. 

"It is therefore the humble Request of .the Vestry that Edward 
Moseley, Esq., (having now business into Virginia) will please to U 
treat with Mr. Frederick Jones concerning the purchase of the said 
land and agree with him for the same, provided he exceed not an 
hundred pounds in country commodities. 

and. Genealogical Register. 259 

"Ordered, that the Church Wardens endeavor to have the pulpit 
finished with all possible speed, as likewise the Desk, and what other 
things belong to it, as likewise to have the Church floor, laid with 
Brick, but upon further debate of the matter it's agreed upon that 
the floor shall be laid with plank as being the cheapest and most 
expeditious way of having it done." (Col. Rec., vol. 1, pages 680-1.) 

The italics, "whereon the church now stands," in the above quo- 
tation are ours; they are not in the original as italics, but written 
as the balance of the paragraph. 

From the above evidence taken from the records, we have the 
ohurch commenced upon the land of Edward Smithwick in 1702 and 
received by the Vestry Dec. 15, 1702; it was, however, not comple- 
ted as late as 1708, when it still required a floor, at which time we 
find the plantation upon which it was built had changed from the 
possession of Edward Smithwick to that of Fred'k Jones, who seems 
from the record to have been in Virginia at the time; he had prob- 
ably just purchased it, and afterwards removed to it. In order to lo- 
cate the exact tract of land "whereon the Church now stands" in 
1708, we propose to introduce the original grant to Edward Smith- 
wick and the deeds on record in the office of the Register of Deeds 
for Chowan County, and trace the title to the present date. Grant 
to Edward Smith wich (recorded in Book I, page 308, Secretary of 
State's Office, Raleigh, N. C.) reads as follows: 

380 acres lying on southeast side of Mattacomack Creek, "Begin- 
ning at a red oak at the mouth of said creek, then down the bay of 
the said creek various courses to a red oak, an old marked corner 
tree; then east 6J° north 300 poles to a white oak; then north 3J° 
cast 147 poles to an old marked hickory by the creek side ; then down 
the creek by various courses to first station. Jany. 1, 1691." 

Smith wick's deed calls for the acre of land (given the Church 
Wardens upon which to "arect a church") to be upon the road lead- 
ing from Thomas Gilliam's house in the woods, and here follows the 
grant made to Thos. Gilliam Apl. 16, 1697, (recorded in Book I, page 
76, Office of the Secretary of State, Raleigh, N. C.) for 560 acres land : 

" Beginning at a red oak standing by the River, then N. 84° E. 300 
poles to a Gum, S. 36° E. 170 poles to a white oak, south 45° W. 320 
poles to red oak standing on the Bank of the River, then up. the 
River by various courses to first station." . -. 

This tract of land lies back of the Smithwick grant, and was sold 
by Thos. Gilliam to Edward Smithwick in 1702, and by Smithwick 
to Jeremiah Vail, and corresponds to what is now called Cherry's 
Point, formerly Collins' Point. The deed from Thomas Gilliam to 
Edward Smithwick cannot be found on the records, but the follow- 
ing deed from Edward Smithwick and wife Sarah to Jeremiah Vail, 
dated July 2, 1709, (recorded in Book B, No. 1, page 367,) conveys 
- a tract of land containing 560 acres, which was formerly granted 
by the Lords Proprietors to Thomas Gilliam as by ye Patent dated 
Apl. 17, 1697." Then follows the same description as found in Grant 

260 North Carolina Historical 

to Thomas Gilliam above The last call speaks of the line dividing 
it from land of Edward Moseley. 

The deed from Edward Smithwick to Frederick Jones is also not 
to be found on the records, but a deed from Thos. Jones and Hard- 
ing Jones of New Hanover Co., N. C, to John Rieussett, dated Julye 
11, 1757, (recorded in Book H, No. 1, page 274,) conveys " 388 acres 
land more or less (except one-eighth part of an acre of the aforesaid 
land, including in the middle or centre thereof the burying place or 
graves of the Ancestors or Family of the said Thomas and Harding 
Jones) situated, lying and being near Edenton, in Chowan County, on 
the opposite side of Queen Ann's formerly called Mattacomack Creek, 
beginning at a Red Oak at the mouth of the said creek, running thence 
down the bay of said creek by various courses of the said bay to a 
red oak, an old marked corner tree; thence E. 6J° N. 300 poles to a 
white oak; thence N. 3J- E. 147 poles to a marked hickory by (he 
said creek side; thence bounded down by the various courses of the 
said creek to the first station; and also 163 acres more or less situ- 
ated, lying and being on the south sid,e of the SE branch of Queen 
Ann's formerly called Mattacomack Creek in Chowan County, and 
adjoining the 388 acres of land above mentioned, Beginning at a 
Red Oak on the northeast side of the said branch, the corner tree of 
the land formerly belonging to one Windley and lately to Capt. 
Nicholas Crisp, dec'd, running thence thro' the said branch SW 40 
poles to a white oak ; thence south 147 poles in the line that divides 
this from the land first above mentioned to a white oak ; thence 
S 30° E 170 poles; thence ENE 130 poles to the line of the aforesaid 
Nicholas Crisp, formerly called Windley's line; thence bounded 
down by the said line NW 276 poles to the first station. Which said 
lands were granted by Patent from the late Lords Proprietors of 
Carolina, to Edward Smithwick, dated in the year 1694, and were 
sold and conveyed by the said Smithwick to Frederick Jones, father 
of the said Thomas and grandfather of the said Harding Jones, and 
by the last Will and Testament of the said Fred'k Jones, bearing 
date 1722, were devised to his son Wm. Harding Jones, and by the 
said William Harding Jones by his will, dated in 1730, were vested 
after the death of his wife Ann now deceased, in the said Thomas 
Jones and Frederick Jones brother of the said Thomas, and to whom 
the said Harding Jones is heir-at-law, containing in the whole 543 
acres of land." 380 acres and 163 acres make 543 acres. The 380 
acres tallies with the Smithwick grant. 

Deed of David Rieusset of Jamaica by John Harvey and John 
Campbell, attys, to Samuel Johnston, dated Oct. 30, 1765, (recorded 
in Book M, No. 1, page 307.) conveys " All that plantation in Chowan 
County near Edenton, N. C. 543 acres whereon John Rieusset, late 
of the Province of N. Carolina, did lately dwell, being all those two 
tracts of land which the said John Rieusset purchased of Thomas ,|| 
and Harding Jones, deed being dated June 18, 1757, and the said | 
John Rieusset by his last Will and Testament, dated 8th July, 1763> m 

and Genealogical Register. 261 

bequeathed and devised to his brother David Rieusset. See John 
Rieusset's will (recorded in Book A, pages 162, 3, 4, and 5, Office 
Clerk of the Sup. Court of Chowan County) in which he says, " I do 
bequeath and devise to my said dear brother David Rieusset my plan- 
tation called Hayse with the appurtenances lying and being in 
Chowan County, containing by the Patents and Deeds 543 acres." 
Will bears date 18 July, 1763. This is the first time we find the 
tract called " Hayse." Gov. Samuel Johnston Deed of Gift, to his 
son James Cathcart Johnston, deed dated Dec. 9, 1814 (recorded in 
Book G, No. 2, page 101), conveys "All my plantation in Chowan 
County known by the name of Hayes with all the lands and appur- 
tenances thereto belonging." 

Will of James C. Johnston dated Apl. 10, 1863 (recorded in Book 

D, pages 57, 58, 59, 60, 61 and 62), conveys as follows: " I give, de- 
vise and bequeath to my friend Mr. Edward Wood, resident of 
Chowan Couuty and State of North Carolina, all my Estate both 
Real and Personal of what nature or kind soever, that I have in 
the county of Chowan at the time of my death." 

Will of Edward Wood dated June 3, 1872, and recorded in Book 

E, pages 33 to 41 inclusive, Office of the Clerk of the Superior Court 
of Chowan County, contains the following bequest: " My Hayes farm 
with mills attached, I give to wife Caroline M. Wood during her life- 
time, with all the Furniture, Library, Riding Vehicles, &c, stock, 
farming implements, &c, upon the same, and at her death to my son 
John Wood, his heirs and assigns, and desire them to keep and pre- 
serve the farm in good order, and keep it in my family as long as 
possible, in respect to the memory of him who gave it to me." 

From a careful review of the facts produced from the records of 
both Church and State in this article, the conclusion is inevitable, 
that the first church built in North Carolina was located on the 380 
acre grant of Edward Smithwick, dated in 1694, the title to which 
has been traced down to the present, when it appears as a part of the 
Hayes Farm now owned by Jno. G. Wood, Esq. The exact spot 
where it stood on this tract of land is not known, and will probably 
never be ascertained. A presumption, however, arises from the na- 
ture of the Grant to Smithwick, and from the fact that in 1702 the 
bulk of the population of this part of Chowan Precinct lived on the 
road leading from the Yoppim road to Sandy Point or contiguous to 
it, that the church was built upon or near the said road leading to 
Sandy Point. The Smithwick Grant was nearly due east from the 
Bay 300 poles, not quite one mile, which is about the distance from 
the bay to said road. Henderson Walker, Nicholas Crisp, Edward 
Smithwick, John Blount, William Banbury, Col. Wm. Wilkinson 
and Thomas Leuten, seven of the eight members of the 1st Vestry 
who lived on this side of the Albemarle Sound and Chowan River 
lived on the aforesaid road, or contiguous to it. Henderson Walker 
lived in 1702 at Skinner's Point, Nicholas Crisp lived on land ad- 
joining Smith wick's, Edward Smithwick resided near the church on 

262 North Carolina Historical 

the same tract on which it was built, John Blount owned Mulberry- 
Hill, William Banbury was living at Atholl, later known as Benbury 
Hall, Col. Wm. Wilkinson resided at Sandy Point, and Thomas'; 
Leuten owned land adjoining Wm. Wilkinson. The other vestry-^ 
man, Nath'l Chevin, in all probability lived on his one hundred 
acre farm which now constitutes a part of the town of Edentori 
Thomas Pollock resided in what is now Bertie County, as did Will 
liam Duckinfield at Salmon Creek, while James Long and Thomas 
Blount were residents of the South Shore, known as Tyrrell and 
Washington Counties at present. 

The land on which the town of Edenton was built was owned by 
three or four persons, and there were no settlements on the north or 
east immediately adjoining its present boundaries, as early as 1702, 
there were two or three families on the west across Filbyrd's Creek, 
(named for Nicholas Filbyrd). 

" At a meeting of the Vestry holden at the Chapel on Sunday the 
25th July, 1708. Present, Edward Moseley, Esq., William Duckin- 
field, Esq., Capt. Thomas Luton, Mr. Nicholas Crisp, Mr. Edward 
Smithwick, Mr. William Banbury, Mr. William Charlton, John Ar- 
dern, Esq. 

" Whereas, it had been taken into our mature consideration, the 
many and great inconveniences which attend the Chappell which is 
already built, both in respect of its ill situation, smallness and rough 
and unfit workmanship, 

"We therefore to show our true zeal for the Glory of God and 
propagating so good a work, do unanimously agree that a church of 
forty feet long, and twenty-four wide, fourteen feet from tenent to 
tenent for hight, the remaining part of the work to he proportiona- 
ble: the roof to be first plankt, and then shingled with good cypress 
shingles, and the whole to be ceiled with plank, and floored with 
plank, for the speedy accomplishment of which said work it's the 
Earnest Request of the present members of the Vestry that Edward 
Moseley, Esq., and Capt. Thomas Leuten will undertake to see the 
same performed, they living convenient, and to agree with Work- 
men at as easy Rates as may be. It being well and substantially 
performed." (Col. Rec, vol. I, page 684.) 

At a vestry held at the Chapell on Thursday, 27th, Feby. 1708-9, 
we find only the following items referring to the church : " Ordered, 
that the Collector of Precinct advance the sum of twelve pounds to- 
wards the beautifying of the Chappell over and above the charge 
of the collection. Ordered, that the way and method of beautifying 
the Church be left to the discretion of the Church Wardens for the 
year ensuing, viz., enlarging, repairing, &c." (Italics ours.) 

An item in the account of the Church Wardens presented at this 
meeting reads as follows: " By 500 feet of Inch board by Mr. Smith- 
wick towards laying the floor, 2£. 10s. Od." (Col. Rec, vol. I, page 

702.) •',.■•■:.. 

From the above excerpts of records, it appears that the plank for 

and Genealogical; Register. 263 

the floor in the church had been purchased, and that the proposi- 
tion to build another church, gave place to " beautifying the church 
by enlarging, repairing, &c," presumptively the first building 
erected. If another church was built prior to 1730 in a different lo- 
cality, after diligent search no deed has been found for the land on 
which it was erected. The records of deeds are silent on this point. 
This forces us to the conclusion that the first church may have been 
enlarged and repaired. There was no incorporated town in the Pre- 
cinct, except Bath, until 1712, at which time the Legislature passed 
an Act " to build a Court House and House to hold the Assembly 
in, and for such persons as were minded to do so to build in the forks 
of Queen Ann's Creek, the place taking the name of " Queen Ann's 
Town," and retaining it until 1722, when an Act was passed to "in- 
corporate the Town of Edenton," in honor of Gov. Charles Eden. 
The first lot sold at "Queen Ann's Town," was conveyed by Nath'l 
Chevin to Charles Foster, Sept. 1, 1715, probably one-half acre, known 
as Lot A, taken out of his one hundred acre farm which he owned 
on Queen Anne's Creek. Later Nath'l Chevin and Thomas Peter- 
son conveyed to Edward Moseley Lots 1 and 2 at Queeu.Anne's Town. 
There is no evidence among the records that there was any church 
in Queen Anne's Town or Edenton, or other place of Public Wor- 
ship, up to Mch. 31, 1729, but there is evidence to show there was 
none about that date. 

Col. Win. Byrd of the surveying party on the part of Virginia to run 
the " Boundary Line" between Virginia and North Carolina visited 
Edenton March 29, 1729, and in his Manuscripts, vol. I, page 59, 
states: "I believe this is the only Metropolis in the Christian or 
Mohamatan World, where there is neither Church, Chapel, Mosque, 
Synagogue or other Place of Publick Worship of any Sect or Re- 
ligion." Again, in the same volume, page 63 : "Our Chaplain re- 
turned to us in the evening from Edenton in company with the 
Carolina Commissioners. He had preacht there in the Court House 
for the want of a consecrated place, and made no less than 19 of 
Father Hennepin's Christians." 

The following extracts from the records will, however, clearly 
show that the first church was in all probability not enlarged, nor 
was there a new and larger one built on its site or elsewhere prior 
to 17'29. Of course I do not refer to the church that was constructed 
in that part of Chowan Precinct now within the lines of Gates 
County, of which we will find a record later on, to- wit, "Sarum 

Rev. John Urmston was the Missionary in charge of the work in 
Chowan and other Precincts. Iu a letter from him, dated July 7, 1711, 
making a report of his work, we find the following language: " We 
had neither Church nor Chapel in 3 of the Precincts, and those two we 
have in Chowan and Perquimans were never finished — ready to 
drop down ; that in th<3 former Precinct hath neither floor nor seats, 
only a few loose benches upon the sand, the key being lost the door 

264 North Carolina Historical 

has stood open ever since I came into the country. All the Hoggs 
and Cattle flee thither for shelter in the summer and warmth in the 
winter; they first dig holes and bury themselves, then with the rest 
make it a loathsome place," &c. (Col. Rec, vol. I, pages 769-70 ) 

The expression in the above extract, " only a few loose benches 
on the sand," seems to indicate that the church was located on the 
*shore of the bay, as sand can only be found upon the Smithwick 
tract at or near the water. However, as this may be, it could have | 
been hauled from the shore to the church and placed within it to I 
make the dirt floor more comfortable. Rev. Mr. Adams had left I 
Chowan and gone to Coratuck in 1709, at which time he was sue- 9 
ceeded by Rev. John Urmston. 

Mr. Adams writes to the Secretary, his letter being dated in Lon- 
don May 13, 1709, as follows, speaking of the Precinets: "Chowan 
is the westernmost, the largest and thinnest settled. They built a 
Church some years ago, but it is small, very sorrily put together, 
and is ill looked after; and therefore I prevailed with them to build 
another, which they went about when I came away. The plan of it 
I brought over, and was desired to procure as much glass as will be 
necessary for the windows, which by computation will amount to 
325 feet" (Col. R c, vol. I, pages 711-12 )

Letter from Rev. John Urmston to John Chamberlain, dated on B

In a letter from Rev. Giles Rainford to John Chamberlain, dated 
Chowan in North Carolina, July 2% 1712, the following language 
appears: "June the 5th I arrived at the Governor's, where I was 
most kindly received bv him, as afterwards by Col. Pollock and Mr. 
Duckinfield. * * * * Whit Sunday * * * * several of the people 
came that day to Public Service, hut perfect strangers to the Method 
of Worship of our Church. Mr. Urmston and I by a mutual agree- 
ment, with the approbation of the Governor, are to manage after 
this manner. He proposes to supply the North Shore at the lower 
end of Chowan, together with all Paspetanck, provided I take care 
of the West Shore (where there is no church). But since the whole

country is entitled to my labors, I visited his shore (which I am 
sorry to say) has been a long time neglected. Mr. Urmston is lame 
and says he cannot do now what he formerly has done, but this lazy 
distemper has seized him by what I hear ever since his coming to 
the country. * * * * There's a small Chapel near an old Indian 
Town where I preached at June 5th, had vast crowds come to hear 
me, but I observed they exprest very little or rather no devotion in 
time of Divine Service. June 22d I preached at one Mr. Garratt's, 
the upper end of Chowan, but had such numbers that I was obliged 
to go under a large Mulberry Tree. * * * I had several confer- 
ences with one Thomas Hoyle, King of the Chowan Indians, who 
seem very inclinable to embrace Christianity and proposes to send 
his son to School to Sarum to have him taught to read and write by 
way of foundation in order to a further proficiency for the recep- 
tion of Christianity. I readily offered my service to instruct him 
myself, and having the opportunity of sending him to Mr. Garrett's, 
where I lodge, being but three miles distance from this Towu. I 
found he had some notions of Noah's flood, which he came to the 
knowledge of and exprest himself after this manner: My father told 
'me I tell my son. There's one Mr. Mashburn who keeps a school at 
* Sarum on the fronteers of Virginia between the two Governments 
and neighboring upon 2 Indian Towns." (Col. Rec, Vol. I, 858-9.) 

Letter of John Urmstom to the Secretary, dated Nov. 6, 1712, 
says: " Mr. Rainsford has proved another Alexander. His coming in 
has been a great detriment to me, and no service to the Country. I 
wish he may stay in it as long as I've done, but very much doubt it; 
never any one could do it, and had I been able should have long 
ago taken me to another place." (Col. Rec, Vol. I, page 888.) 

Now, in all these letters there has not been one word written with 
reference to the Church or Chapel, nor have we found in the records 
of the Vestry Meeting for past two years any allusion to building or 
repairing. Rev. John Urmstom speaks of the Chapel being "ready 
to drop down, and a resting place for Hoggs and Cattle; they flee 
thither for shelter in the Summer and Warmth in Winter." Mr. 
Rainsford's letter to the Secretary, dated Chowan, N. Carolina, 17 
Feby., 1712-13: "Mr. Urmstom , has bought a plantation on the con- 
fines of Virginia." (Idem, Vol. II, page 17.) 

Rev. John Urmstom to General Nichelson, North Carolina, July 
1st, 1713-4: "This is now the time of payment, whilst people have it. 

* Sarum was in all probability located at or near the '• Ballard place," about 3 
miles Northwest of Gatesville at the head of "Sarum Creek." It was three 
miles from Thos. Garrett's on Catharine Creek to Thos. Hoyle's Indian Town, 
located on their grant for 11,000 acres of land lying between Catharine Creek 
and Bennetfs Creek, making it about 5 or 6 miles distant from the present Town 
of Gatesville, N. C. The other Indian Town referred to as being convenient to 
the School at Sarum was most probably that of the Meherrin Indians at or near 
the mouth of the Meherrin River. Sarum being located at the head of Sarum 
Creek was about equidistant between the two towns. On a recent visit to Gates- 
ville, in conversation with an old gentleman 83 years old. he stated, that when 
a boy there were evidences at or near the Ballard place of a very old settlement/'

At a Vestry met at the Church on the North shore of the Sound 
in Chowan Precinct Mch. ye 2d, 1713-14. Answer to a letter from 
the Honoble Society by the Honoble Coll. Nicholson were ordered:. 
"None of them ever abode so long here as Rev. Mr. Urmstone hath 
done. Yet have not been so happy in him neither as we would have 
desired, by reason that for the most part there hath been no other Min- 
ister in these parts. Since his arrival * * * he hath made the other 
precincts sharers with us in his ministry. As for the two years last 
past he hath been prevailed with, and indeed necessitated, not being 
able to travel any longer about the country to confine himself to this 
precinct, * * * pray the Honoble Society to continue or rather add 
to the Salary of Mr. Urmston to the End he may be enabled to stay 
with us; that they will out of their great Charity concur with our 
honest but weak Endeavors to establish a Church, Ministry and a 
School." (Idem, Vol. II, pages 119 and 120 ) 

John Urmstone's letter to the Secretary. Extract: "North Caro-

where I have resided for six years and a half, several essays have 
been made towards a meeting, but there were a majority, at least 
we had eight, whereof two refused to qualify themselves as the Act 
which I sent the Society directs, and nowe they pretend without a 
new Act there is no Vestry, all to avoid payiug me, hoping by that 
means to drive me out of the Country." (Idem, vol. I, page 248.)

it." (Col. Rep.,, vol. II, page 279).

22, 1717. "It was agreed that we should hold a Vestry every first 
Sunday in the month, but we have never since the first nor I believe 
ever shall ; the first Sunday in the month we had one Church War- 
den and three Vestrymen." (Idem, page 288.) 

In his letter dated Oct 23, 1717, he speaks of Rev. Mr. Taylor ar- 1 
riving here about a month ago (page 294), after which time Mr.' 
Urmston commenced his labors in the lower precincts. - 1 

We have given the statements of Rev. John Urmston, fully aware; 
that his reputation in the Colony to say the least was very unsavory; 

* Rev. John Urmston owned 400 acres of land on the Albemarle Sound, either I 
covering a part of Athol! water front, or on the tract immediately west of it. 
He gave Edward Moseley a power of attorney in 1720, shortly after he left the 
Precinct, to dispose of it. This paper is indexed, but on referring to the book 
and page, we fail to find it recorded.

his statements when corroborated by other evidence are worthy of 
j credence and others relating to minor details, where there could be 
no motive or interest to prevaricate, must likewise be received. We 
) nevertheless leave the reader to attach thaE weight to his evidence 
the facts and circumstances may justify. The trend of all the record 
evidence is to the Edward Smithwick grant of 380 acres, as being 
the place upon which was erected the first church in N. Carolina. 
We can not see how a doubt of this fact can linger in the mind of 
any person, after a careful and thoughtful investigation of the evi- 
dence collected in this sketch. A second church (while the records- 
are not in accord with the thought), may have been commenced,, 
but we can find nothing to indicate that it was ever completed or 

St. Paul's Church in Edenton, N. C, was commenced after 1729, 
but it is not now our purpose to give its history. We may do so at 
a later date.

There is no date to this paper, found among the Court records of 
Chowan County at Edenton, N. C, but it was evidently executed 
prior to 1716, as John Byrd, one of the signers, was dead at that 
time. This oath was required of all officers upon their qualifi- 
cation to office. It remained a law until the Convention of 1835, 
when, through the efforts and influence of Hon. William Gaston, it 
was abrogated. There are three words in the oath that cannot be

child, Sarah Blount, who married William Littlejohn. Joseph Blount I mar-

Thomas Blount Littlejohn, eldest son of William Littlejohn and 
Sarah Blount, born at Edenton, N. C, Dec. 9, 1773, but went to 
Granville Co., N. C, when a young man, where he married Eliza- 
beth Mutter (dau. of Thomas Mutter, a Scotchman, and Elizabeth 
Moore) on Thursday evening, Dec. 6, 179S, Rev. Henry Pattillo per- 
forming the ceremony. Thomas Mutter and his wife Elizabeth 
Moore had four children. (1) Thomas Mutter, father of Dr. Thomas 
Mutter, of Philadelphia, (2) John Mutter, father of Mrs. .Fannie 
Macon, of Richmond, Va., (3) Margaret Mutter, wife of John Bon- 
ner Blount and (4) Elizabeth Mutter, wife of Thomas B. Littlejohn. 

Thomas Mutter died , and his wife, Elizabeth Moore, married, 

2nd, George Alston, also a Scotchman, and she was known among 
her descendants as " Grandma Alston." She died at an advanced 
age about 1840 at her home in Granville Co., where she is buried. 
Her granddaughter, Margaret Littlejohn, inherited a handsome 
Miniature of her (which is now owned by a daughter of Maj. Roger P. 
Atkinson, of Greensboro, N. C), and a valuable breastpin worn by her 
(which is now in the possession of Mrs. Theodore B. Kingsbury). 

Thomas Blount Littlejohn was in business with his father at 
Edenton before he moved to Granville Co. He afterwards lived at 
Oxford, N.'C, where he merchandised and farmed for many years, 
and in his old age was " Clerk and Master in Equity." 

The land whereon Oxford, Granville Co , now stands, was form- 
erly the property of Mr. — — Mitchell and others, and was pur- 
chased of them by Pannele some years before the Court House was 
located there. In 1805 Thomas B. Littlejohn, Esq., purchased of 

"270 North Carolina Historical 

Pannele, for the sum of $1,500, the tract of land, but refused to al- 
low a town to be laid out on it or to sell any of the property. Much 
dissatisfaction grew up in the county at this monopoly; people had 
no shelter or other accommodation while attending' court, and peti- 
tions were circulated in the county to remove the Court House from 
Oxford. To prevent this, Mr. Littlejohn consented to sell 50 acres 
for a town. Accordingly, in 1811, an Act was passed by the General 
Assembly of North Carolina appointing Col. Robert Burton, Benj. 
Hii Hard, Col. Charles Eaton, Dr. John Hare, and Robert Jeter Com- 
missioners to purchase 50 acres of land from Mr. Littlejohn and sell 
it off in lots. This was accordingly done, but no corporate govern- 
ment was established until 1816. In that year an Act to incorporate 
the town of Oxford, in Granville Co., was passed, and William M. 
Snead, Nathaniel M. Taylor, Dr. William V. Taylor, Leslie Gilliam, 
and Thomas Blount Littlejohn were appointed Commissioners. They 
were our first "City Fathers," and were empowered to. fill any va- 
cancy that might, from any cause, occur in their body. The corpora- 
tion seems to have become dormant, for in 1825 an Act was passed 
relieving the Corporation, and naming Thos. Blount Littlejohn!, 
Thomas Booth, Dr. William V. Taylor, David Mitchell, and Rhodes 
N. Herndon Commissioners, and providing for the election of Com- 
missioners on the first Monday in May of each year. Again the 
Corporation died out, but was revived in 1830, and has existed un- 
interruptedly ever since. In 1832 and 1844 Acts were passed amend- 
ing the " Acts of incorporation." 

Thomas Blount Littlejohn remained in Oxford until he was 
nearly eighty years old, when he went to live with his youngest 
daughter, Mrs. Geo. Field, at her home "Glen wood," in Warren Co., 
N. C, where he died Jan 29, 1854, in his 81st year, and was buried at 
Oxford, N. C, in the family graveyard by the side of his wife, Eliza- 
i beth Mutter, who died Feby. 19, 1842, in her 44th year. 

For forty years he was an earnest and devoted member of the 
Presbyterian Church. Whilst those who knew him in life's summer 
prime could tell many things illustrative of his humanity and firm- 
ness, and punctiliousness, and Christian integrity, and inflexible hon- 
esty, yet the present writer would simply say that a better man he 
never knew, one whose strict observance of the nicest proprieties of 
society was more invariably scrupulous and characteristic of the 
gentleman, or in whose daily life were more clearly exemplified the 
shining attributes and rich virtues which cluster so thickly around 
the character of the Christian. As might have been anticipated 
from so pure a life, his end was glorious and peaceful — serene and 
resigned and quiet as the setting of an unclouded sun. Mr. Little- 
john appeared to them who only knew him in the last days of his 
life, when the machinery had been well worn by the service of eighty 
years, as a man of strong and marked character, a character so vig- 
orously drawn and developed that no portrayal could possibly pre- 
sent him correctly or accurately unless the lineaments were drawn

by the cordial and geDial hand of an Ancient friend who knew him 
when his form was erect, athletic, and his eye beamed with the un- 
dimmed lustre of a healthful and active manhood. He who now 
writes only speaks of him as he appeared in his declining years. 
Some two years and a half before his death he left Oxford, his place 
of residence for sixty years, to spend the evening of his life in War- 
ren Co., where the fondness of a daughter could minister to his com- 
fort. So gentle and serene was his death, it seemed like the sinking 
of a summer breeze on the sweet music of a falling quiet stream.

The above item is copied literally from the original found in the 
office of the Clerk of the Superior Court of Pasquotank County. 
The date is erased, but by the aid of a glass it was found to be Sept. 
5th, 1729. 

f;The house of Wm. Burgess was "on the North side of Pascotanc, 
at the head of Ramond's Creek." This place corresponds to Shiloh 
in Camden County, Camden County having been formed out of ter- 
ritory -formerly embraced in Pasquotank Precinct and County. If 
any of our readers could designate the house and land of William 
Burgess in 1729, the exact location could be ascertained where this 
first Congregation was organized and where they worshipped.

Letter of Joshua Lamb, of Roxbury, Mass., to the Hon. Governor 
of N. Carolina: "On the 21st of November I saw a letter frornl 
your Honour, sent to Col. Paige, wherein you were pleased to ac- 
quaint him, that our title to Roanoke Island was questioned and* 
that no record could be found of my father's purchasing of it. il 
thought meet therefore by the first opportunity to acquaint youri 
Honour that my father bought the island of Sir William Berke- 
ley * one of the Proprietors of Carolina, and then Governor of Vir- 
ginia, on ye 17 of April, 1676, which deed was recorded Dec. 20, 
1676, by Paul Latham Clk and was also recorded in our records 
in Boston. So that our title is legal and substantial. My father 
sold one half of ye Island to Col. Page, and a quarter to Mr. Pardridge, 
and ye other quarter still remains in my hands. I intreat your 
Honour to be so favorable to us, that all needless trouble and charge 
to us may be prevented. I purpose ere long to dispose of what part 
is yet at my dispose to one of the Inhabitants of Carolina, being at 
such a distance that I can't have any advantage by it. 
I am Your Honour's 

Most humble servant, 

Roxbury, Mass., Dec. 5, 1704. Joshua Lamb. 

To the Hon. Robert Daniel, Esq., Governor of North Carolina. 

Nicholas Paige, of Boston, writes the Hon. Governor Sept. 20, 
1761, as follows: "I have received yours of the 23d Aug't for 
which I give you hearty thanks for your kindness in advising me 
of my interest in Roanoke Island. The Island was ye Gov. Stephens, 
he dying left it to his wife. Sir William Berkeley then Governor of 
Virginia, married ye widow and hee and his Lady sold ye Island to 
Mr Joshua Lamb, father to this Capt. Lamb, and ye one-half which 
I now owu was bought of Mr. Joshua Lamb and soo hold it from 
him. It cost near three hundred pounds. * * * * Your humble 
servant to command. Nicholas Paige. 

To His Excellency 

Robert Daniel, now Governor of N. C. 

* Sir William Berkeley married the widow of Gov. Stephens, who died in 1669. 
he succeeded William Drummond as Governor, who went to Virginia in 1667, 
and later engaged in Bacon's rebellion, and was summarily executed by Gov. 
Berkeley on the 16th day of May, 1679, being tried at 10 o'clock and executed at 
4 o'clock the same day. All historians have spoken of Governor Drummond in 
terms of highest encomium, while a dark cloud hangs, and will ever hang, over 
the memory of Berkeley, for his brutal and inhuman execution of Drummond. 
Gov. Drummond left a widow, Sarah Drummond, one son, John, of whom we 
have no record, and a daughter, Sarah, who married Samuel Swann, born May 
11. 1653. She dying, he married second, Elizabeth, daughter of Major Alex. 
Lillington and widow of Col. John Sandal. By this marriage Sarah Swann, 
wife of Frederick Jones and Elizabeth Swann, who married John Baptiste Ashe. 
The State has cause to be proud of the descendants of the Jones and Ashes, the 
pages of her history are filled with their deeds, as scholars, soldiers, statesmen and 
citizens. We are glad to know that the race is not extinct, and that there still 
lives worthy sons of these noble sires.

Albemarle being tbe first 'settled, was the first organized county in 
Carolina. The date of its incorporation is not definitely known, 
probably by the Legislature which met in 1666. It existed as early 
as 1670, as clearly shown by the court records of that date — a copy 
of a minute docket of the Court of Albemarle county has already 
been published in No. 1 of The Register (see No. 1, page 135). 

It was composed of the Precincts of Carteret, Berkeley and Shaftes- 
bury, the first named covering the territory now occupied by the 
counties of Currituck, Pasquotank and Camden. The last named 
county was a part of Pasquotank until about the close of the Revo- 
lutionary war. Alligator, on the south side of the Albemarle Sound, 
was for a number of years a part of Pasquotank Precinct. 

Berkeley Precinct included what is now known as Perquimans 
County and a small portion of Gates County lying contiguous to 
Perquimans, which was separated in 1779 and placed with other 
territory taken from Chowan County to form Gates County. 

Shaftesbury later known as Chowan Precinct, embraced a large 
area of territory, corresponding to the present counties of Chowan, 
Gates, Hertford, Northampton, Bertie, Tyrrell, Washington and 
Martin. In 1722 Bertie was erected into a separate Precinct, taking 
all the territory west of the Chowan River under its jurisdiction, 
•which extended as far as the Anglo-Saxon had penetrated the wilder- 
ness, felled the forests and turned to the sunlight the soil that had 
been hidden for so many centuries. It was also called the "West 
Shore" on account of its location on the west side of Chowan River. 
Northampton and Hertford counties were formed of territory origin- 
ally part of Chowan, later of Bertie County — the former was incor- 
porated in 1741, the latter in 1749. The Precinct of Tyrrell was set 
apart in 1729, taking the territory on the south side of the Albe- 
marle Sound, and as far up the Morattuck (Roanoke) River as Rain- 
bow Banks. It was called the "South Shore," as it was on the south 


North Carolina Historical 

side of the Albemarle Sound. The Morattuck River was the dividing 
line between the Precincts of Bertie and Tyrrell. After the loss 
these two Precincts, Chowan retained only that portion of her terri- 
tory, north of the Albemarle Sound and east of the Chowan River}! 
Her boundaries continued intact until 1779, when Gates County wl 
organized, including in her boundaries a small part of Perquimans I 
which was placed with that taken from Chowan. After all these divi- 
sions and subdivisions had been made, the boundaries of Chowaril 
have remained the same to the present day, and are as follows; I 
" Beginning at the mouth of the Yoppim River on Albemarle Sound, § 
thence running up the middle of said River to its source, thence up' 
the Mill Creek to Wilder's Mill, thence up the main channel of the 
mill pond and swamp to Hathaway's bridge on Bain's Road, then I 
N. 17° W. 569 chains to a cypress at Caleb Goodwin's bridge on thejl 
Cattail Swamp, thence N. 4° W. 309 chains to the Crane Pond where;^ 
it crosses the Sandy Ridge Road, thence along the Sandy Ridge | 
Road by various courses 639 chains to Gates County line, thence 
along the Gates County line to Catherine Creek, thence down the 
middle of said creek to the Chowan River, then down said River to 
Albemarle Sound, thence down the said Sound to the first station. 
(See Map and Report of Commissioners in office Register of Deeds 
of Chowan County.) 

Courts appear to have been held in Albemarle County as early as 
1670, and possibly prior thereto. The earliest minute docket thus far | 
found is dated in that year and has already been referred to above. 
The records of Albemarle County Courts are to be found in the 
Court House at Edenton in a fair state of preservation, and contain 
most of the early history of the Albemarle section of North Caro- 
lina. The Courts were held regularly, and in the absence of Court 
Houses, the private dwellings of her citizens were utilized for that 
purpose. No record of the existence of any Court House has been 
found earlier than 1718. This building seems to have been first used 
Nov 11, 1718 (Col. Rec, Vol. II, page 314), was located at Edenton/ 
and was in existence in 1729. Tradition says that the present struc- 
ture is the same as that used in 1718, but the records do not sustain 
the tradition, hence it must fall. Col. Wm. Byrd, of the surveying 
party on the part of Virginia to run the boundary line between | 
that State and North Carolina, visited Edenton in March, 1729, and 
in his Reminiscences, Vol. I, page, 59, speaks of the Court House, as- 1 

and Genealogical Register. 309 

having the appearance of a " common Tobacco Barn." This was 
evidently the wooden building first erected, and not the handsome 
"Brick Edifice" which now fronts Edenton Bay. Deeds are on 
record in the Register of Deeds office of this county from the Com- 
missioners of Edenton to the Justices of the Peace of Chowan Pre- 
cinct, dated in 1722, for lots Nos. 58 and 59, " old plan of the Town," 
upon which to erect a Court House; but as these lots were afterwards 
sold by the Commissioners to other parties in 1738, having lapsed 
for want of a building, we 'are forced to conclude that 'the wooden 
building stood on the same lot on which stands the present edifice 
of brick, with its stone floor and elegant panel work in the large room 
of the second story. The brick and material of which this building 
is composed, is said to have been brought directly from England — 
this is, however, tradition, and we have no record evidence to sus- 
tain it. The date of the erection of the second building has not yet 
been ascertained. We hope to find it among the records as we pro- 
ceed with our work, and give it to our readers in a future number. 
It is hard to realize, in this progressive age, the serious inconve- 
niences, privations and hardships that environed the early settlers 
of Carolina, in every department of life. The country was sparsely 
settled, neighbors were frequently miles away. Without roads or pub- 
lic conveyances they were forced to make their journeys on foot or 
horseback along Indian paths or trails, with the savage and wild 
beast roaming at will the dense forests surrounding them on every 
side. The Port of Roanoke (Edenton) was the metropolis, and many 
of those having business, public or private, were compelled in many 
instances to travel thither as indicated above, from sixty to seventy- 
five miles, and frequently cross the Albemarle Sound in an " Indian 
Dugout," to reach their courts, or procure such articles as had been 
imported into the Colony, that were necessary for the maintenance 
of their families and promotive of their business. The processes of 
the Courts were executed by a Marshal, who had deputies living in dif- 
ferent parts of the several precincts. Arrest and imprisonment for 
debt was frequent. Their communication the one with the other 
living at different points in the county was exceedingly difficult. 
There were no mail routes, and the pockets of the traveller consti- 
tuted their only mail bags — uncertain, and often vexatious, as care- 
lessness and forgetfulness caused frequently weeks of delay in re- 
ceiving replies to letters conveyed in this manner. The same diffi- 



310 North Carolina Historical 

culty appears in passing the titles to real estate. Deeds were allowe 
to accumulate in a neighborhood until the number justified the ap 
pointment of some one person in the community armed with pow^ 
ers of attorney to repair to the nearest place of Probate, and have! 
them properly probated and recorded, hence we find the same wit- 
nesses to perhaps six or eight instruments recorded at the same timej 

Tobacco and pork, in the absence of money (which seems to have 
been but little used in business transactions), were the legal tenders' 
of the country. The judgments of the Courts were given payable in' 
so many pounds of either one or the other of these commodities? 
Imagine in this age a business man stopping to weigh tobacco or 
pork, receive the same and transport it to his place of business in ; 
exchange for other articles to be similarly transported by the pur-! 
chasers. It would clog business to such an extent as to create chaos 
in the mercantile world, and almost drive the business men of our! 
day to the Insane Asylum or suicide. Yet our ancestors managed 
to thrive and prosper under this system, and bore all their priva-|| 
tions and inconveniences with cheerful spirits, looking only to the 
solid foundations they were laying upon which was to be reared by I 
coming generations a social fabric destined to be the pride of every| 
North Carolinian and the envy of the civilized world. 

Marriages were frequent among the early settlers ; the men mar 
ried as soon as they reached manhood, and the girls at fourteen and I 
fifteen years of age. It was unsafe for females to be left alone, on J 
account of the country being filled with savages and wild beasts. A 
male protector was an absolute necessity for their safety. For this 
reason we frequently find widows marrying in a few weeks or months I 
after the death of their husbands, their newly acquired mate joining'^ 
with the widow in the administration upon her deceased husband's:! 
estate. In our age this would appear very hasty, and be considered 
in very bad taste; but circumstances in that day necessitated speedy I 
marriages, and the gentlemen and ladies easily and gracefully! 
adopted and appropriated the necessities of the occasion. We find 
many " much married persons" among the early settlers. We find 
ladies who had been married four and five times, and gentlemen 
Who had been so unfortunate as to lose as many wives. Divorces' 
were unknown; death alone dissolved the marriage tie. 

Special care was taken of the orphans. They were reported to the 
proper authorities, who assigned them " to dwell until of mature age" 

and Genealogical Register. 311 

with persons of good character, who were charged to teach them to 
read and write, and have a proper care for their physical and moral 
training. It has been a pleasure to the writer to take especial notice 
of the solicitous care and tender thoughtfulness of the authorities in 
this respect which runs all through the records of the Court in those 
early days. This duty has been taken from the authorities to a 
very large extent in the present age by the Orphan Asylums of 
North Carolina. They are doing a most excellent work in this de- 
partment of Christian work, and should receive every consideration 
and support the people can command and extend. Take care of 
the children; the future of your State depends upon the characters 
they form in youth. The waif thrown carelessly upon the world 
without check' or balance may in the years of manhood or woman- 
hood bring upon a community a countless multitude of woes. 

The only factor in facilitating the exchanges of the country were 
sail vessels. Steam had not been invented, and was yet some dis- 
tance in the future. Many of the settlers were Mariners, who 
ploughed the briny deep for a support for their families, brought to 
their homes the products of the Isles of the Seas, and laid the con- 
tinents under contribution for their comfort and welfare. Rum, mo- 
lasses and slaves were the chief imports, while tobacco, pork, corn 
and the skins of wild animals constituted the chief items of export. 

There were no institutions of learning — the home was the school- 
house in which the children were trained and the mother was the 
teacher. Here they learned to read and write, were taught the duties 
of a housewife, and had correct principles instilled by a mother's 
" line upon line and precept upon precept," her own example being 
the model after which their characters were formed. It is a matter of 
no surprise, under such circumstances, that the men and women 
were of such robust, sturdy character. Such a people necessarily made 
their impress upon the coming generation, and they, in turn, upon 
the succeeding, until our present civilization has been evolved and 
become the monument that tells posterity of the achievements of 
the noble sons and daughters who first settled Carolina. There 
were but few churches, none prior to 1702, and but three as late as 
1708. For the greater part of the time they were without shepherds 
to feed the flock; here and there services were infrequently held at 
private houses, yet they seem to have held to the faith of their fath- 
ers, and after awhile churches were built and ministers secured to 


North Carolina Historical 

officiate in them. It is wonderful how much was accomplished ixm 
the intellectual and moral training of the people under such adverse" 
circumstances. We find running all through the early records a 
charming simplicity of honesty and morals that would be a credit 
to the present age, and looking back to the simplicity of life in those 
days and contrasting it with the conventionalities of society at the 
present, we are forced to conclude that there was more real, sub- 
stantial happiuess then than now; there was a freedom without" 
license in their social intercourse that placed all visitors at perfect 
ease, made them feel welcome and at home in the rude unpreten- 
tious log-houses in which all dwelt, I imagine, far different from the 
strict adherence to style and etiquette we find in so many of the 
splendid homes of the present day. 

Chowan County, as at present constituted, has about forty miles 
of water-front on the Chowan River and Albemarle Sound. Its 
sailing and fishing facilities are immense. The original settlers (the 
Indians) appropriated in the fullest measure their riparian rights. 
They lived upon the water and in the forest. These constituted his 
only smoke-houses, and as a result they had no use for money. No 
legislation was required as to ratios, whether it should be 16 to 1 or 
no ratio at all. Money never crossed his mind by day or disturbed 
his slumbers by night — so they had enough to satisfy the cravings of 
their appetites for the one day it was sufficient, the morrow took 
care of itself. They lived upon fish taken from the water and the 
game captured in the forest. The fishing advantages of this part of 
Eastern Carolina have been a large factor in supplying the people 
with food for their families and money to meet their demands- 
Many pages could be written upon this industry, but we must con- 
tent ourselves with what has been written and simply add, as in the 
early times, so now a large part of our population are fed and 
clothed by the fish that are taken from Chowan River and Albe- 
marle Sound. 

Cotton, corn and peanuts are the chief staples of the soil, while 
shad, herring, perch, rock and sturgeon are the chief products of the 
water. The population of the county is about 11,000, about one- 
half of whom are negroes, former slaves of the whites. 

Albemarle County was shortlived — about threescore years and 
ten marks the limit of its existence. In 1738 the Legislature passed 
an Act changing the names of the precincts to that of counties, and 


and Genealogical Register. 313 

Albemarle County passed silently from the map of North Carolina. 
It served well the purposes of its creation, and' will live in history 
as long as the State endures. All honor to its memory. 

It will require one thousand subscribers to make our Publication 
pay and enable us to give the public such a work as we desire. If 
our subscribers will interest themselves and run our subscription list 
to that number by the end -of the year, we hope to give them some- 
thing more to our taste, and at the same time reduce the subscrip- 
tion price. Until this is done we can not do more than make the 
Publication pay its way. We have subscribers in thirty States of 
the American Union, scattered from Fort Worth, Texas, to Concord, 
N. H., and as far West as San Francisco, Cal. 

Two months of grippe, and two months of the printer to get this 
publication out, has placed its appearance well behind. The first 
excuse will, we are sure, be satisfactory to those of our readers who 
have been so unfortunate as to have suffered in this way, and will 
be, to those who have never had the grippe, should, they once suffer 
from it. For the second we can offer no excuse, except our misfor- 

We thank our many friends for their kind words in commenda- 
tion of The Register, as well as the substantial aid we have re- 
ceived from them in the way of subscriptions. 

The next issue will contain an article from the Historian of the 
North Carolina Society of Colonial Dames, at Wilmington, N. C. 
We have extended them a space in each issue of our publication, in 
order that the members of the Society may keep informed of the 
transactions of this most excellent Society. We hope it may prove 
mutually beneficial in increasing' their numbers, and also adding 
to the number of our subscribers. 

We will, publish in our next a list of the periodicals and books 
we have received, with short reviews of each.

requests us to insert a Query. Their sons were Whitmell,' Drury or 
Drewry, Philomon, John (also called Young John). Young was a 
surname in the family. Chas. Harrington was wounded at Ala-

The Early Settlers of Alabama, a volume in cloth binding of 530 
pages, is on our table, edited by James E. Saunders, (a relative of. 
Col. W. L. Saunders), and his granddaughter, Mrs. Stubbs. It is an

logical, and is written with an ease and grace of style that captivates 
the reader and holds his attention to the close of the article. It gives 
valuable historical sketches of the Western Campaign during the 
" War between the States," which the writer has not before had the 
pleasure of perusing. The work adds much to the historical and 
genealogical lore of the century. There are thousands of families 
directly interested in its contents, who can not afford to be without 
it. Its genealogy runs through almost every Southern State. Price 
$3.25 delivered, and can be had of Mrs. W. C. Stubbs, Louisiana

Lady in Nashville, Tenn., is very anxious to learn of Benjamin 
White and wife Miss Needham. His own son John served seven 
years in the Revolutionary War, and after the war married Rebecca 
Cathey ; removed to Georgia and from there to Tennessee about 
1800. Archibald Cathey was the father of Rebecca, who mar- 
ried John White; also information of William Gooch and wife Miss 
Rice who lived in Caswell County, N. C. He died about 1801. 
Their sons Thomas, Nathan and David removed to Tennessee; also 
forbears of Elizabeth Anthony who married Thomas Gooch; also 
Gordons and Kennedys. John Kennedy was killed by Indians while 
returning from the wilderness of Kentucky to North Carolina; also 
of Courtney Sivills who married Martin Lane, of Raleigh, N. C. 
She lived at the time of her marriage with her uncle, Joshua Suggs; 
also of the Laceys. A century ago a branch of the North Carolina 
family settled in Hopkins County, Ky. 

Lady in Atlanta, Ga., wishes the following query inserted. She 
desire3 the descendants of Daniel Tucker, one of the first Governors 
of Virginia. They originally settled near Norfolk, coming from the 
Bermuda Islands. William Tucker married Christian Raiford ; 
they had grandsons in the Revolutionary War. They appear in 
South Carolina. Phillip Raiford, Justice of the Peace of Craven 
County in 1758. He was the father of Sarah, who married Genl. 
John Pearson, of Fairfield. In 1751, he was Lieutenant in Captain 
Fairchild's Rangers, and his brother William a private. 

Isaac Raiford died in Columbia, S. C, in 1815, nearly a hundred 

years old. One of his daughters married Kesler, another the 

celebrated Moses Kirkland, and yet another (Mary) married Capt. 
John Pearson, father of Genl. John Pearson above. Mathew Rai- 
ford, of North Carolina, will executed in 1752, mentions children 
Mathew, Mary, Ann, Rebecca, Philip, Robert, William, Grace and 



N. C. Historical and Genealogical Register. 

Drucilla. This Phillip was probably the same of South Carolina 
and Robert, Captain (brevet Major) 8 N. C. Continental Line, mem" 
ber of the Order of the Cincinnati. Phillip Raiford was member of 
House of Burgesses of North Carolina in 1779. John Raiford wa? 1 
an officer in North Carolina Continental Line. Phillip Raiford, off 
Cumberland County, N. C, married Jane Armstrong. Her father 
was a native of Bath, England. They had but one son, Robert^ 

father of Col. Phillip, and Sarah married Eve. Robert mar- 1 

ried Henrietta Newby, of Cumberland County, N. C. Phillip the 
elder was paymaster under Genl. Nathl. Greene. Alexander Rai 
ford was the only brother of Phillip. They had four or five sisters, 
who married Robertson, Picket!, Terry and De Jarnette. Their de- 
scendants moved to Virginia and Alabama. Morris Raiford had 
brother Isaac, probably the Isaac who died in Columbia in 1815. 
Information wanted of the emigrant. Please give us all the light! 
you can. 

Query: William Cantrill came to Virginia in 1607 from England. 
Capt. John Smith locates the settlement of " Cantreel and Sicklemore I 
betwixt Potomac and Rappahannock." The Virginia Historical Maga- 
zine gives Henry Cantreel in Charles City County in 1639. Can any 
one give any other information of either of the above, or their de- 
scendants? Tradition says John Cantreel was born in Rockingham I 
County, N. C. (or that vicinity), moving into South Carolina before 1 
the Revolutionary War. He had twenty-one sons, six of whom were 
in the Revolutionary War from North Carolina — Abraham, Isaac, 
Jacob, Joseph, John and Thomas. A Stephen Cantreel served in the 
same war from North Carolina, possibly another son or nephew. 
Jacob was my great-grandfather. He died in Orange County, N. C> 
in 1790. Tradition says Zebuloii and Joseph Cantreel went into 
Virginia from Philadelphia, Penn., early in 1700, later into North 
Carolina. Was either of these brothers the ancestor of John ? Any 
information of any of the above, or any of the name in Virginia or 
North Carolina, would be greatly appreciated by 

Susan Cantrill Christie. ■

" Like leaves on trees the race of man is found, 
Now green in youth, now withering on the ground: 
Another race the following Spring supplies; 
They fall successive, and successive rise: 
So generations in their course decay; 
So flourish these when those are passed away.

Note. — Thomas and Ann Jacocks were the founders of the Jacocks family 
in North Carolina they left one son Jonathan I, who married about 1709. 
Mrs. Elizabeth Collins widow of William Collins of Paquotank. She died 
without issue in 1711 and Jonathan I married 2nd Mary Blount born 1696, 
eldest daughter of John Blount and wife Elizabeth Davis, (daughter of John 
and Mary Davis of Henrico Co., Va., and grand-daughter of John Burton of 
the same place,) they purchased land near Scotch Hill in Bertie Co., at the 
head of the Albemarle Sound, where they lived and died in 1735, their estates 
were administered -on by John Blount, brother of Mrs. Mary Jacocks in 1735. 
From the division of the estate in 1739 the following appear as their issue. 

(1) Jonathan Jacocks II who married Elizabeth Hill (daughter of John Hill 
and wife Mrs. Martha Bate nee Whitmell, and sister of Hon. Whitmell Hill) 

(2) Charles Worth Jacocks married Anne West, who became the third wife 
of Simon Bryan, (3) Thomas Jacocks married 1st Rebecca Scolley of Boston. 
Issue Rebecca and Mary Jacocks whose descendants live in Massachusetts. 
Thomas Jacocks married 2nd Mrs. Elizabeth Reed, nee Durant, widow of 
Joseph Reed, and daughter of George Durant and wife Hager Crisp. No issue 
by the last marriage. (4) Joseph Jacocks of whom we have found record 
since 1739. (5) Elizabeth Jacocks last record of her we find among the 
Bertie Court items in 1747, when and where she appeared in Court being 
then 17 years old and chose Edward Bryan to be here guardian, Mrs. Bryan 
was her cousin, being a daughter of Thomas West and Martha Blount, sister 
of Jonathan Jacock's wife. She married in all probability shortly after this 
time. Can any of our readers tell us whom, or give us any items relating to 
the other members of the family, especially Joseph. Mrs. Hathaway, now 
at rest, the beloved and lamented wife of the Editor of the Register, was a 
descendant of this family, through Jonathan Jacocks II and wife Elizabeth 
Hill as mentioned above, hence our great desire for information of the family.
